In a cheeky behind-the-scenes snap, Essex girl Gemma Collins is seen having a ball with Brian McFadden, former beau of Kerry Katona, during his performance with Boyzlife.

Our favourite diva from TOWIE, 43 year old Gemma, couldn't have looked happier as she posed alongside the handsome Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden at Chelmsford's Foodies Festival prior to their stint on stage.

This comes as a result of Boyzone's very own Keith Duffy and Westlife's Brian McFadden joining forces to create the newly minted boy band Boyzlife. The dynamic duo has got fans buzzing with news of their upcoming UK tour, set to kick off with their debut gig in January 2025.

Gemma later posted a bevy of photos showing her backstage antics, including receiving a friendly peck on the cheek from Keith. Dressed casually in a light green tee with white trousers and trainers, Keith stood next to Brian who opted for a similar ensemble but switched out the green top for a bold blue one.

On her social media, the reality TV star-turned-globe-trotter gushed about the group after cheering them on from the side-lines, penning: "I will love @officialboyzlife forever.”

Not resting on her laurels, Gemma went on to reveal her subsequent escapades with the boys in Abu Dhabi whilst continuing with her filming commitments.

Gemma has been candid about her fertility challenges after being diagnosed with PCOS, expressing her desire to be the "best version of herself" for her future children. The star has also shared her weight loss journey, proudly announcing her drop from a size 26 to 20, as she looks forward to starting a family with her fiance Rami Hawash.

Talking to OK!, Gemma said: "I don't want to be an overweight mum," Gemma said, emphasising her wish to be active and energetic for her child. "Nothing against overweight mums at all, but I want to run and play with my kid. I want to have as much energy for my child as possible and to be the best version of myself for my child.”

PCOS, as described by the NHS, is a condition that can impact a woman's ovaries, characterised by irregular periods, excess androgen, and polycystic ovaries.

Diagnosed at 28, Gemma found hope through dietary changes. Her dietician Steve Bennett believes this new approach will significantly improve her condition.

He stated: "With PCOS, the number one cause is a dysregulation of sugar and putting fibre first helps Gemma to regulate the sugar intake and therefore that would be the logical step to removing PCOS."
